  1. Hi folks, As we are all aware the end of March marks the sad end of one of Nottingham's most iconic shops, Selectadisc. After serving music lovers since the 60's and being part of the whole social music scene of Nottinhgam the way people cosume mucis has signalled the end to probably one of the besy independant record stores in the country. Given thay so many people have memories and stories to tell about Selecta I have been trying to collate these into a collaborative blog with some phtotos I took at a recent shoot with the guys in the shop. If anyone can share any thoughts, comments memories and photos please visit: http://axeman3uk.blogspot.com or you can leave them in this thread and I shall upload them or you can mail me: axeman3uk@hotmail.com The e-mails have been busy already after Radio Nottingham interviewed me yesterday morning on the Andy Whitakker show at around 8:15am. Any help on this project would be greatly appreciated, if I can get enough I want to look to publish it as a book. Cheers Rob

    I recently did a photoshoot at Selectadisc and wanted to collate some information / memories / phtotos from other people to help collaborate on a blog I am running with. You can visit my blog on at axeman3uk.blogspot.com (no www. needed!) and please feel free to contribute to this collection of memories of one of Nottinghams most iconis shops. Alternatively leave your comments / memories / photos in the thread and I'll uplift them to the blog or you can e-mail em' to me at axeman3uk@hotmail.com (mark subject line as Selectadisc). Cheers for the help Rob p.s. Good luck to Jim and the guys at Selecta in the attempt to keep the name going somehow.......... back to your roots maybe.
  3. Did they do some filming on the roads out and about near Langer, I seem to remeber there was a large white house on the way out to Langer if you headed from Bingham, it may be a suggestion......... I know it was also used for some filming in Auf Weidersehn Pet! Cheers

    Selectadisc

    The end of March will certainly be a sad day when we say goodbye to Selectadisc, I have so many memories from buying my first Wedding Present album (George Best) in 1987 to discovering some great bands and genres before they hit the scenes, the likes of Mudhoney, Green River, Richard Hawley, the list goes on and on (as does my huge record and cd collecton). I think I lost countless hours of my life thumbing through vinyl, 7" and cd sections in the various shops that Selecta had over the years, it was really part of the whole social music scene of Nottingham. You folks may be able to collaborate on a blog I am running with to try and bring some of the many memories, anecdotes and pictures of one of Nottinghams most iconic shops together.................... if we get enough togther I may even look at getting into some kind of print........ so come on over and leave me your memories: http://axeman3uk.blogspot.com if you cannot or do not want to register on Blogger please e-mail me any memories / pics etc to: axeman3uk@hotmail.com Good luck to Jim and the guys of Selectadisc and Jim's quest to continue the name in some form.
